Although the Lakers failed to sign Kawhi Leonard in the free agency market, they still announced their joining in Leonard James and Anthony after the Clippers-Davis has been reinforced.
According to US media reports, the Lakers have signed Danny Green with a two-year contract of 30 million yuan, and signed Quinn Cook with a two-year contract of 6 million yuan. In addition, McGee, Bo Players such as Pu, Cousins and Rondo.
The following is the current situation of the Lakers lineup:
DeMarcus Cow Sins
Jonathan Williams (Qualification Quotation)
Jia Reid Dudley
Then assume that Williams will Choosing to stay in the team, then the Lakers currently have two vacancies. Among them, Taron Horton Tucker, who is the 46th overall pick in the second round of this year, may be one of the choices to fill the roster. In addition, the Lakers also signed a two-way contract. Under Zach Nowell and Jordan Carrollan, if these two players are not on the team roster, then the Lakers can still have 1 openThere are options for own players.
Among them, Crawford should be the ideal choice for the veteran backcourt. Of course, he can also choose young backcourts like Trey Burke and Deron Wright.
In terms of the interior, the Lakers have reorganized the former Pelicans and Davis and Cousins, and McGee’s contract extension can also fill some defensive depth, but If the Lakers still hope to have better inside depth, then Farid and Jie Michael Green will be potential choices.
For now, General Manager Pelinka is building with James and David The lineup with Kuzma and Kuzma as the core seems to have a good shooter and defensive lineup.
Among them, Danny Green is a championship-level 3-D backcourt. In the past this season, he contributed 45.5% of the three for the Raptors. Score performance. Cook has won the championship trophy during his time for the Warriors, and in the past two seasons have 44.2% and 41.8% three-point shooting performance.
Cousins is a four-time All-Star player. In the past 30 games for the Warriors this season, he averaged 16.3 points, 8.2 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.5 blocks, and 1.3 steals. Daniels and Dudley are both goodOf 3-D players, not to mention Pope who averaged at least 11 points per game in the past five seasons.
Just for the current results, the Lakers are stillJames builds the strangest-looking lineup. First of all, the partnership between James and Davis does have a very top threat, but the other players in the Lakers have certain complications.
Among them, the shooter players will be limited by their physical talents. Because of James’s position, the point guard players can only play the role of defensive champions on the court. They need to be the third or third place on the team. 4 Prove yourself in case of choice.
Although James and Davis Partnering with players like Dudley and Daniels seems to be a very wise decision in line with the team's lineup function, but how to control the playing time of these young players and veteran players and the functional problems under different lineup situations? For Gehr, it will be a challenge.
And I have to mention The problem is that the Lakers do not seem to be so ideal in the choice of backcourt depth. The preferred veteran Rondo is indeed a very good ball handler, but to be honest, this should be the ideal choice when Leonard joins, because he missed Lun. Nader, the Lakers have already signed Danny Green and Pope, and when most of the ball is in the hands of James in the regular time, Rondo's possession needs should be added behind Green and Pop, considering Green He and Pope have a certain ball control abilityRondo, who has not shown his shooting ability for love, is still somewhat redundant on the offensive end of the Lakers, and using these cap space, the Lakers can fully consider other ideal options.
Next is the signing of Cousins. To be honest, there are very few former All-Star players who have been in good shape this past season and can sign 3.5 million annual salary contracts, but considering the current Cousins In the situation, this is still an ideal choice. It's just that some executives in the league have never been optimistic about Cousins' game. At least in this offseason, many teams were still scared off by Cousins’ Achilles tendon injury and quadriceps injury in the playoffs. What's more, Cousins has certain risks for the Lakers whether it is a normal foul or a technical foul.
In general, the Lakers can It is not easy to build the current lineup, but the team lineup risk is also a part that cannot be ignored.
